“What makes the DGA Awards so very special,” Glatter said, “is that it is recognition by one’s peers, camaraderie in celebrating excellence in our craft and our DGA teams, as well as the special evening we share together as a storytelling family. And more than any other year, we could really use some laughs. There is no host that hits all these notes more perfectly than leading director, comedian, writer and industry force, the incredible Judd Apatow. We couldn’t be more grateful that he’s returning to the DGA Awards stage. And behind the scenes, when it comes to all things live and comedy, it doesn’t get better than Beth McCarthy-Miller. With this powerhouse team on board, it’s sure to be a fun-filled evening.”
